Yes Virginia, there ARE nice people in New York
Well this is a new one for BOTS. I am taking this time to commend a NYC citizen (I think anyway...he had the accent....faintly Brooklyn or Staten Island) who was on 5th Avenue yesterday evening around 5:15pm.
I was walking down the street, looking for someone to bitch slap, and saw many people trying to hail cabs. Here's a heads up kids, you'll NEVER get a cab on 5th Avenue during rush hour. NEVER.
I saw these two old ladies (one with a walker) trying fruitlessly to hail a cab. They flagged down every motherfucker in a yellow car no matter what light was on or off. "TAXI" the old one yelled. "TAAAAXI" the older one (with the walker) screamed....
About 20 feet ahead of them was a guy trying to get a cab himself. There are miracles you know, and someone got out of a cab right in front of him. I love it when that shit happens!
It was at that moment that a ray of sunshine broke through the concrete jungle as I watched this man look at the two old ladies, look at his watch, and then he waved the old ladies up to his cab. The lady with the walker took her sweet ass time, but what can you do. This guy held that cab (and even stopped others who were hawking it..he said, and this is verbatim, "AY! This is my cab get it?") for these two ladies and then continued his mission impossible for transportation of his own.
Sir, I don't know who you are, but BOTS salutes you!
